Hi Everybody: I have been a visitor to this forum for the past 12 months, but posting for the first time. My wife's and mine I-485 was approved very recently on May 24 according to the Online status. We got the Approved letters in mail and got our Passport stamped from Dallas District Office. PD June 1999, EB2 India RD Dec, 2000 ND Jan, 2001 Change of Employment (layoff) July 2001 (184 days into I-485) AC21 letter sent, July 2001 FP March, 2002 RFE May 2002 (Asked for Employment letter, duties, Previous statuses since came to US) Response to RFE Recd by INS Aug 2002 I-485 Approval May 24, 2003 (TSC) I hope this helps others who might be in similar situations. I have learnt a lot from this forum, I came to know about the 15 month FP expiration rule through this forum, requested lawyer to draft a letter to the INS officer requesting approval before FP expiration. I found out about the Officer # and fax # from the IIO. Lawyer also used AILA liaison to request approval using FP expiration as a reason in May 2003. I am very impressed with the work of Tru, Jaxen and many others who are helping many people here. Thanks and good wishes to all of you in getting approvals. Cordially, wingc03 PS-> I am not a lawyer, please use information at your own risk. My case might be a specific or exception.
